I think many of you are making an ages old mistake.Liberals are unable to be reasoned with, they will only ever listen those who share their
They always believe that "the evil rich" dont pay their share, and that the low end of the totem pole deserves others stuff for some unknown and
I am in the low end of the scale, and I dont take any "handouts", I work for what have. Yet even being in the low end, I dont see how :taking" what
others have earned and "giving"it to those that havent "earned" it will fix the situation.
The only hope is that the government will stop spending money we dont have, and learn to live within its means.
Taking money from the rich will not help us, it wont even keep the wolves away for more than a couple days longer.
Raising taxs during a financial situation like the one we are currently in, will only make matters worse.
Anyone thinking "the rich" dont pay "their share" is not even living in reality, they are already paying more than 75% of the people in this
Also of worthy mention, is the simple to understand fact, that if you tax the Walton family more, they will simply raise the price of their goods, so
they maintain the same profit margins.
Raising taxes on the rich, is the same as raising the minimum wage, it doesnt help anyone at all, and only makes things worse across the board, by
lowering those above the poverty line down to it, it doesnt in any way at all ever, raise anyone up out of it.
For example, a simple math problem- We will say "mike" makes $8.00 an hour, and "sandy makes the minimum wage of $4.25. When they raised the
minimum wage to $7.25, mike didnt get a pay raise did he? Nopers, not at all, and as he was making close to 2 times the minimum wage, he was doing
alright, now though, he is right at the line, and at the lowest possible denominator, where previously he was 2 times above it.
On the opposite side of the coin, did "sandy get raised up out of poverty? Nopers again, as mckey Ds simply raised their prices to compensate for her
raised minimum wage.So yes now Sandy is bringing home more money every week, but now all goods cost more, so she doesnt actually have any more buying
See this is how inflation works, yes you might have "more" dollar bills in your pocket, but when they are worth less, everything will require more
to purchase said goods and services, so it is not any better, unless you are the kind of person that thinks it is better to make $1,000,000 a week and
have bread cost $85,000 a loaf, because at least your wallet is swollen with useless paper.
Just my 2 cents, take it or leave it, but dont deny the facts, they are plain to see.
